Decent BA / SPG / Gold / Platinum Amex offer – £10 off £30 at WH Smith

A decent new American Express promotion has appeared in the online accounts of many people.   I have it showing under my Platinum card although it is not showing for my SPG or BA Amex.  My wife does have it showing for her BA Amex.

(EDIT: As per the comments below, it seems that this offer is also on Foursquare.  This should mean that you can register every Amex card you own as long as you have a Foursquare account for each and register via their app.)

The deal offers £10 statement credit when you spend £30 at WH Smith.  It is valid for the first 30,000 people to register.

If you think that WH Smith doesn’t have much to offer, think again.  The larger (non-railway and non-airport) stores tend to sell a decent range of gift cards for a start.  This effectively means that you can transfer your £10 saving to a different retailer altogether!

Stocking up on stamps is another possibility.  You will also find a range of toys in some stores as well as the usual books, magazines etc.

If you can find a suitably large store – for Londoners, there is a good one just a few steps from Chancery Lane tube station for example – you could save yourself a few pounds across various Amex cards relatively easily.

The deadline for spending the £30 is 15th October.

Some other, less interesting, deals have are also showing on my accounts, some of which I have mentioned before:

Armani Exchange, £10 back on £50

TopShop, £15 back on £50

Red Carnation Hotels, £25 back on £250

Moss Bros, £50 back on £200

Sunglass Hut, £10 back on £100

Gap, £15 back on £50

Skype, £5 back on £10 (ends 30/9)

Hilton, £50 back on £250 spend in UK (ends 30/9)

Debenhams, £10 back on £50

Achica, £25 back on £85

House of Fraser, £10 back on £50

Sign-up bonus on the Emirates credit cards increased - worth applying?
